Intelligent Key Fob Intermittent Start/stop Of Vehicle. Went To Start My Car After Dinner And It Would Not Start.no Activity When Pressing The Intelligent Key Fob. Stranded In A Parking Lot ,called My Spouse And Then He Came With A Spare Fob, Same Thing, No Start.turned Fob Around Per Owners Manual And Car Started But Key Warning Light Flashed All The Way Home.

Went Out Next Morning And Car Started Fine After Two Stops, At Third Stop Would Not Start Again. Used Procedure Suggested In Owners Manual And Car Started. Drove To Final Destination And No Key Warning Light Flashing. Went Online And Found Many Complaints Of Dealer Related Issues With Replacement Of A Steering Lock Switch To Cure Problem, (at A Cost Of Around 800 – 900 Dollars), At The Car Owners Expense. Found Some Other Info Online Suggesting There Is An Extended Warranty From Manufacturer On This Item. Have Not Yet Researched That Claim. Also Some Suggestions To Inform Nhtsa To Start A Recall Process For This As It Seems To Be Widespread With This Make And Other Models Of This Manufacturer. I Am Submitting This Complaint In The Hopes That Others Will Also And Get A Recall Issued For This. Will Contact A Local Dealer For More Info On Status Of Manufacturer. Twice In 24 Hrs Is Not A Coincidence. There Is An Issue With This System And It Should Be Looked Into By Nhtsa.
